Who Says Comics are Only for Kids?

Pulitzer Prize winner, Art Spiegelman is coming to speak tonight about his views and style of producing comics at Comix 101: Forbidden Images and the Art of Outrage. 

Comix 101

His use of this medium is to express an opinion or point of view.  For instance, in Maus and Maus II, two of his most notable works, Spiegelman retraces his parents’ story as they survived the Holocaust.  Other works of his include designing the cover of the New Yorker magazine for ten years time, co-creating the Garbage Pail Kids stickers and cards and In the Shadow of No Towers.

You can read more about him in the National Post’s article this week Art Spiegelman: Politically Correct ‘Fever’ Grips Canada.

This event cannot be missed!  There will be a raffle giving away signed copies of Maus and pieces of his own artwork.

It is at the Isabel Bader Theatre
93 Charles Street West
Lecture starts at 7:30, with doors opening at 7.

Get your tickets now by calling 416-913-2424 or go to www.uofttix.ca.
